I think in the world of jewellery; packaging is almost as important as the item itself.
I love shopping online and the moment I have placed my order I begin to impatiently look forward to it arriving. I want it YESTERDAY. My postman knows I'm always pleased to see him!

I've ordered things online in the past that when they arrive in less-than-impressive packaging I've felt a bit 'meh'. But equally when an item arrives in beautiful, thoughtful packaging it's made my day and added to the whole enjoyment of my shopping experience.

So with that in mind I worked especially hard on ensuring the Tilly & Tabitha gift packaging was luxurious, thoughtful and complimented the jewellery perfectly. I've received hundreds of comments over the years commenting on the packaging so I know I must be doing something right!

However, while researching this I came across some weird and wonderful packaging ideas that I'd love to share with you...

Some of these are cute, some are just genius!

After an exhausting week looking after my poorly six year old daughter I'm glad to see Friday plus it's the first official day of spring!
My daughter finally seems to be on the mend and the sun is actually shining. I've been very busy today planning some new designs for the spring /summer collection heavily influenced by nature and British wildlife that I can't wait to share with you.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend whatever you're up to!



Our new stacking bracelet set is proving to be very popular indeed!
Made from the most stunning collection of Swarovski crystals and pearls in a vibrant mix of fuchsia pinks and amethyst purples, this gorgeous set of three bracelets can be made to fit any adult wrist size and comes beautifully packaged too so would work just as well as either a thoughtful gift or as a well earned treat for yourself.

So, with spring just around the corner it's time to start thinking about fashion for the new season. To show you how beautiful these bracelets really are I've put together an outfit idea that is certain to brighten you day.



I love skater dresses as they are so versatile. I spotted this gorgeous magenta number at boohoo.com - such a fab colour and only £20.

These comfy yet height-giving cork wedges are from New Look and compliment the dress perfectly.

Next up, this lovely bag can be found at Debenhams, again a beautiful colour and a decent size too! 

Pink and purple always look absolutely stunning together and are one of my all time favourite colour combinations so I think this Barry M Gelly nail polish in Plum would look great with this outfit.

The polarized cat eye sunglasses are from Next and to complete the look I've found the perfect lip colour with this Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick 'Fuchsia Graffiti 7'


The bracelets along with a huge selection of other beautiful jewelley can be found in our lovely Tilly & Tabitha shop.
